House of Cards: Off-screen drama
Apart from on-screen politics, this Netflix show has been in the limelight for a great deal of off-screen drama as well.
Clearly, it is no secret that Kevin Spacey who played the show’s protagonist Francis Underwood is not in the show anymore because of the sexual assault allegations on him by Anthony Rapp.
Spacey’s Sexual assault allegations
Rapp made these grave allegations in a BUZZFEED interview. In the interview, he stated that he was a victim of sexual misconduct by Spacey. He also mentioned he was just a 14-year-old teenager.
Netflix,”No more seasons will be made.”
Post this incident, Ted Sarandos, chief content officer, Netflix confirmed that season 6 will be the last of House of cards. The 8-episode season was released on November 2, 2018.
Wright is as disappointed as the fans
Along with the fans, Robin Wright who plays the role of Claire Underwood is disappointed at this abrupt end of the show. She made a few strong statements absolutely against the show’s shutdown.
The highly paid American actress reportedly asked Netflix to reconsider. She considers herself, the voice of 2,500 other people who contributed to the production. Above all, with the end of the show, the production crew suddenly lost their jobs.
Nevertheless, as it is said every good thing comes to an end, so did this series. Also, at this time, the House of cards fan should start looking for other political dramas to binge-watch.
